Chamonix was the birthplace of Cosmojazz Festival in summer 2010, with the idea of sharing with the contemplation of all backgrounds an extraordinary human adventure to discover amazing landscapes, dizzying cosmic sounds, in a friendly atmosphere.
The first Fête des Guides (guides festival) took place on 15 August 1924 with, as its patron, Yvonne Coty, the wife of the famous perfume producer, François Coty. Having historically been under the protection of the Virgin Mary, the guides naturally chose Assumption day for their event. The aim of the first festival was to collect funds for the Caisse de Secours (guides’ benefit fund), the subscriptions to which were no longer sufficient to cover their needs.
The Mont Blanc Trailers and the French, Italian and Swiss municipalities of the Mont-Blanc region invite you to an extraordinary adventure: go around the Mont-Blanc individually in one step, crossing 3 countries!
